[texts]Professional audio production, editing, and mixing techniques - Dowse, Justin Michael
The purpose of this thesis is to demonstrate professional and efficient music production and music mixing techniques. This is not meant to be a definitive answer to the endless approaches that can be used in music production and mixing. Instead, it is intended to aid learning in a profession where there are no black and white answers since choices in music production and mixing are highly dependent upon the engineer's preferences...

[texts]Performance analysis of adaptive blind equalization algorithms for noisy fir and iir channels - Althahab, Awwab Qasim
This thesis addresses the problem of blind adaptive equalization of finite impulse response (FIR) and infinite impulse response (IIR) channels (their characteristics are unknown) in the fractionally sampling scenario. An adaptive equalizer is used at the receiver to compensate the time dispersion induced by noisy communication channels and eliminate the effect of Inter-Symbol-Interference (ISI). In other words, the overall our system model, which is a cascade connection of the channel and equali...

[texts]Investigations into chemistry misconceptions of high school students - Dusto, Ethan C.
Students have varying degrees of misconceptions relating to the field of chemistry which arise from a number of different sources. Survey based pretests were given to a group of high school students and a posttest was generated from their responses. The posttest was then given as a pre- and posttest to a second group of students the following year. The results were analyzed to see what misconceptions persisted with students from the pretest to the posttest...

[texts]Predicting high school completion using student performance in high school algebra : a mixed methods research study - Chiado, Wendy S.
Too many of our nation's youth have failed to complete high school. Determining why so many of our nation's students fail to graduate is a complex, multi-faceted problem and beyond the scope of any one study. The study presented herein utilized a thirteen-step mixed methods model developed by Leech and Onwuegbuzie (2007) to demonstrate within a large urban Rocky Mountain school district, the existence of a significant relationship between high school algebra performance and high school completio...

The surface of an acrylate-based shape memory polymer ("SMP") was modified to capture cationic biomarkers of eosinophilic esophagitis ("EoE") to establish a better diagnostic and monitoring system of this disease. Incorporation of a negative charge into the SMP allows for specific adsorption of the cationic biomarkers with additional leverage from the shape memory effect to position the polymer near the lumen wall of the esophagus...

[texts]Adjusted measures of district and school performance : a social justice study of Colorado's Latino students - Broer, Ashley J.
The reauthorization of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 has increasedattention to student achievement. Specifically, the challenging demographics inColorado make attention to Colorado's Latino American students a critical issue. Colorado's population of Latino American students is now the largest and fastest growing ethnic minority group in the state. Although it is necessary to hold educators accountable for students who are not achieving, it is inappropriate to make judgments simply from r...

[texts]Light Scattering Properties Vary Across Different Regions of the Adult Mouse Brain - Al-Juboori, Saif
Recently developed optogenetic tools provide powerful approaches to optically excite or inhibit neural activity. In a typical in-vivo experiment, light is delivered to deep nuclei via an implanted optical fiber. Light intensity attenuates with increasing distance from the fiber tip, determining the volume of tissue in which optogenetic proteins can successfully be activated. However, whether and how this volume of effective light intensity varies as a function of brain region or wavelength has n...

[texts]The influence of early life adversity and social cue on cocaine-induced dopamine release in the nucleus accumbens - Grotewold, Susan Karen
The susceptibility to cocaine addiction varies as a function of idiosyncratic and environmental factors, differentially predisposing individuals to this disorder as a product of the combination of these variables. In particular, early life adversity has been identified as playing a key role in the development of substance abuse, and exposure to chronic stress during early critical periods may sensitise individuals to the reinforcing properties of psychostimulants...

[texts]Effects of High Intensity Oceanic Lightning Discharges on the Earth's Ionosphere - Barsikyan, Levon Aleksandrovich
Very Low Frequency (VLF 3-30 kHz) receivers are used to monitor the amplitude and phase of signals from powerful naval VLF communication transmitters. Since the VLF transmitter signals propagate in the Earth-ionosphere waveguide, they provide a method for remotely sensing ionospheric density changes. The effect of powerful natural oceanic lighting discharges on the ionosphere are investigated using VLF remote sensing and the Global Lighting Detection Network (GLD360)...

[texts]The effects of molecular saturation of feedstocks on renewable diesel production in the absence of hydrogen gas - Dubinsky, Jonathan
Catalytic deoxygenation of fatty acids was carried out using Palladium on Carbon (Pd/C) and Magnesium Oxide (MG70) catalysts and a Parr bench top micro reactor. The effect of feedstock saturation on the decarboxylation reaction was measured by varying the feedstock from stearic acid (fully saturated) to oleic acid (mono-unsaturated) to linoleic acid (poly-unsaturated). The prevalence of the decarboxylation reaction was measured by analyzing both the liquid products and the gaseous products...

Women diagnosed with breast cancer may find BRCA 1/ 2 genetic testing useful in order to make decisions about breast cancer treatment options or in determining risk of future cancers. Through an ethnography of eight breast cancer survivors in the Denver Metro-Area this study reveals how access to BRCA 1/ 2 genetic testing differs depending on the type of private insurance coverage patients have. The political ecology of health (PEH) theoretical framework is used to analyze how the private insura...

The pancreatic islets of Langerhans' are multicellular micro-organs which are integral to maintaining glucose homeostasis through secretion of insulin. Beta cells within islets synchronize their insulin release through cell-cell communication to create large bursts to meet physiological needs. However, in patients with diabetes there is a reduction in this cell-cell coupling which leads to a hindered insulin response.To better characterize the effect of cell-cell coupling in β-cell synchron...

We derive and examine the Neyman-Pearson Detection of an FSK modulated waveform in white Gaussian noise. We specifically examine three cases: 1) detection when the waveform is known exactly; 2) detection when the waveform is known down to an unknown initial phase and; 3) detection of the waveform when the energy level is known but the signal is not. We then derive robust detection schemes where the noise comes from a broader class of stochastic processes and includes the possible occurrence of o...
